INDIANA Jones fan Sam Graham was thrilled to find some archaeological remains on his first ever dig.

Archeox, the East Oxford Archaeology and History Project, has been running a series of digs in the Blackbird Leys and Greater Leys area.

The group has been looking for evidence of Romano-British pottery industries, Civil War defences and other evidence of the area’s past.

On Saturday, Archeox members staged a dig at a house in Grebe Close, Greater Leys.

Sam, a pupil at New College School in Oxford, said: “It was good fun and it has encouraged me to think about becoming an archaeologist.”
